A toolpath of a simple profile of a box only produces a line cut along the X axis. The first problem seems to occur at N260, the A- move. It appears that Mach just ignores it, as there's no delay on the X axis moves. Same for the A+ move in N280. I can manually move the A axis with the hotkeys and the pendant, and A axis commands prior to line 260 will cause the the table to move into correct position.

Anyone have any ideas?

- Code: Select all
